When you think about affordability, most people think of smaller cities or rural areas.
According to the website Livability.com, Las Vegas appears on their list of the top 100 most affordable places to live at number 71.
The list was restricted to areas with a median home price of less than $250,000. Las Vegas' home price was close at $247,054.
Of course, Las Vegas' amazing weather is high on the list of reasons that the city is extremely livable.
"Las Vegas earned high scores for diversity, amenities (obviously — good luck running out of things to do here!) and economics, thanks to a strong local economy with a steady stream of job opportunities in hospitality, marketing and, increasingly, technology," says Livability.com.
The Livability list was beaten by places like Madison, Wisconsin, and Raleigh, North Carolina. The number one city was Boise, Idaho.
While those might be wonderful cities, they don't offer nearly the same level of entertainment, excitement, and amenities as Las Vegas. For those of us who live here, Vegas is easily number one for a whole host of reasons.
